- Audrey from Geeknet has responded to me.
- The Geeknet team has decided not to accept any of our options, see below:
- Option 1: OWASP would like to propose that Geeknet waive either all or a percentage of the invoice fee, and redistribute the funds as a donation to the OWASP Foundation.
- Option 2: OWASP would like to propose a 1 year corporate membership, and a 6 month online rotating banner advertisement in exchange for $10,000 being deduction from the Invoice in question. Total value: $17,500 in OWASP Services.
- However, they did deduct $2500 from the original invoice: Update Geeknet Invoice.
- We have agreed to take this deduction, and are currently processing their payment.
